Protect Yourself with Seven IDP Knee Guards

If you’re tackling the mountain this weekend (or anytime soon), you’re going to want the best possible gear to keep your body in tact. To that end, the new Seven IDP Knee protection options offer everything you want- full coverage, lightweight designs and all day comfort. From the landmark Project Knee Guard to the all-new Sam Hill design, you need to check into these guards before you fly down your next trail.

By all accounts, Seven IDP is a leader in mountain bike protection options. From their helmets to their elbow guards- they mean business! But the knee protection is truly impressive. While their popular Flex Knee/Shin Guards offer a complete lower leg solution, it’s some of the more nuanced options we want to focus on in greater depth.

Clearly, there’s no need to front, people. We know that Seven IDP makes ridiculously high-quality MTB & BMX Protective Gear… so let’s get to it.

Complete knee protection… that’s the Project.

Seven IDP Knee – Project

The Project Knee Guard is for racers and riders looking for lightweight, hard shell protection. Moreover, the innovative knit sock creates a truly comfortable ride! Meanwhile, the flexible hardshell and center strap system give the Project Knee Guard the ultimate protection and secure fit.

PEDAL FLEX MOBILITY

Speed is the priority for racing, to gain that speed, efficient pedalling is key. The Project knee uses a knitted, breathable sock to keep the rider cool and add to the comfort of a compression fit pad.

FLEXIBLE HARD CAP

A hard cap that is flexible provides the best fit while dispersing forces in a crash.  Designed to slide over rather than grip any surface a rider meets at flat out race speeds.

CENTER STRAP SYSTEM

To remove any bias from a side loading strap our center strap system is designed to apply even pressure around the lower thigh.

Project Knee Protection.

RACE BRED PROTECTION WITH A SOFT HARDSHELL OUTER AND POLYGON FOAM INTERNALS FOR MAXIMUM COMFORT AND FREEDOM

Lastly, for riders looking for the best knee protection while keeping weight down, the Seven iDP Project Lite Knee Guards are ready to hit the trails. Noteworthy is the ultra-lightweight protection with a soft hard-shell outer. Not to mention the knit sock for maximum comfort and freedom. In short, the Project Lite gives riders extra-lightweight protection. Also, the innovative knit sock and flexible hard-shell give your knees supreme protection as well as a secure fit. And they’re available now at BTOSports.com.

What in the Sam Hill…

Seven IDP Knee – Sam Hill

Introducing the Sam Hill Knee Guard. Especially relevant is that this signature design comes with valuable feedback from the legend himself. This knee pad builds off of our popular Transition model. It’s simply the ultimate lightweight knee pad for trail riding to Enduro racing.  Light enough to be worn all day long.  The Sam Hill knee pads mold with body heat to provide maximum comfort with a breathable mesh back panel to wick moisture away from the skin.

SUPER LIGHT

Without compromising safety, passing the relevant CE test the Sam Hill pads offer comfortable protection in a super light package. Similar to our best selling Transition Slip-On Knee Pad, but with added side protection and longer pad coverage.

COMPRESSION FIT

Designed to keep weight down the compression fit, slip on design fits higher on the thigh than most pads. An internal silicone strip keeps the pads from slipping down.

BREATHABLE SOCK

Running the length of the pad in the rear and extending across the lower front a breathable 4-way stretch mesh maintains airflow for all day comfort.

DEVELOPED WITH EWS CHAMPION SAM HILL. HIS SIGNATURE KNEE PAD BOASTS EXTRA SIDE PROTECTION AND ALL DAY COMFORT IN A WINNING PACKAGE.

Naturally, these Sam Hill beauties come in a light weight option as well. Because Seven IDP don’t play! So with the Sam Hill Lite Knee Guards, you get all these great features in an even more light and comfortable package. So if you’re a real racer looking for every edge- these are for you.
